Hidden Heart Red Velvet Cupcakes

My husband made a very disturbing confession this week.
He doesn't like red velvet cake!!
*stunned silence*

I thought I knew this man!
You can imagine my distress at this revelation.
We may have to go to therapy to get past it.

In the meantime, the kids and I will enjoy these Hidden Heart Red Velvet Cupcakes.
The frosting heart inside the cupcake is a fun surprise
and they make a great Valentine's Day treat!

 What You Will Need:
 Red Velvet Cupcakes with tops cut off
small heart cookie cutter
cream cheese frosting
confectioners' sugar in a sifter

Center your heart cookie cutter on the cupcake and press down.
Use a spoon to scoop out the cake inside the heart.
Eat the cake scraps.

Fill the heart cavity with cream cheese frosting.
(You can fill a ziploc bag with frosting and snip off the corner.)

Trace your heart cookie cutter on a piece of paper.
Cut out the paper heart and center it on a cupcake top.
Use a sifter to sprinkle powdered sugar over the cupcake top.
Carefully remove the paper heart.

 Place the tops back on your cupcakes and enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day!
 I share my recipes and tutorials at these fun link parties.

Another fun Valentine treat idea...

  3. Awww these are lovely! Might have to try these next month for Valentine's day! xxx

  4. terimakasih atas informasinya. sukses selalu

  5. OMG I LOVE red velvet cake and I LOVE these cupcakes....just gave this great post a shout out! Happy Thursday!

  6. I love the idea of having a shape to fill the cupcake, and the heart makes them super festive! Definitely going to try these!!!

  7. Woah, love this idea and it's super cute but you can't make cupcakes out of your red velvet bundt cake recipe. I've made that cake several times ( and LOVE it btw) and the cup cake that you bake with it to make the garnish always comes out flat and crispy. No biggie when making the cake I just take the top off and crumble the rest for the garnish but I dont think it'll work for straight up cupcakes. Do you have a different recipe for the cupcakes?

  8. I love this idea, so simple but so effective!
